Facing environments where flash fires or flames are present requires gear that can withstand intense heat and fire without compromising movement or comfort. Firefighters facing multiple heat exposures, along with police, soldiers and technical rescue teams who face the possibility of incidental flame impact, must all be durably protected against these threats.
DESIGNED TO PROTECT
PPE with Gore protective fabrics has been rigorously tested to ensure it performs and protects as intended in a range of scenarios.
Firefighting and Technical Rescue
Gear needs to provide protection against flames and exposure to high temperatures.
To safeguard against the unexpected, defense forces require gear that can protect against sudden or incidental flame, as well as instances of flash fire, while keeping the wearer comfortable.
Electric utility workers need PPE offering weather protection in combination with protection against heat, flame and the thermal hazards of electric arc.
RELATED PRODUCT TECHNOLOGIES
Our range of technologies have been engineered to meet a high level of protection, comfort and reliability in personal protective equipment, based on rigorous hazard testing for specific industries.
GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® product technology
Waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® product technology offers protection against the penetration of viruses and bacteria found in blood and body fluids, as well as protection against the penetration of common chemicals.
The GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® PARALLON® product technology eliminates the need for a tradeoff between thermal protection and breathability by achieving unparalleled levels of breathability, while also preventing drops in thermal protection that can occur as gear gets wet, particularly from sweat.
GORE-TEX laminates are durably waterproof, windproof and breathable keeping wearers dry and comfortable. Additional protective technologies, can make them ideal for some of the most demanding professions.
GORE-TEX PYRAD® product technology helps to avoid excessive bulk and weight in heat- and flame-resistant protective garments. This textile technology enables laminates to offer burn protection in situations involving heat and flame exposure, while retaining the key benefits of GORE-TEX rainwear
